From 16th to 19th September 2019, the 30th Cartoon Forum will be held in Toulouse, France. Cartoon Forum has been the core event for the growth of co-production and distribution of European animation for television and new media platforms since 1990. It has helped finance 775 TV animation projects, funding over 2.7 billion EUR since its inception.
